I don't think that's his point. He's just saying Duncan Barlow and the whole hardcore scene of the 90's and today sucks, and his real musician friends are better because they've had lessons and played with some State Fair circuit cock rock bands and sold 6000 records. Or was that digital downloads? Doesn't matter. By the way, I don't know the numbers, but I'd be willing to bet that Guilt sold way more than 6000 copies of several of their releases. God knows how many records Endpoint sold. If that's what we're using to measure the worth of a musician.
I feel that too. I mean I knew that really wasn't his point. And you're right, it's sort of retarded to measure a band's talent by the amount of records they sell because some bands that sell millions suck massive dong. I'm just saying that the whole scene clarification deal is kind of bullshit. I hate how certain medias will depict a certain group and acknowledge their entire scene when really there's a lot more to it than that. There's a lot of variety in scenes and especially the Louisville scene. But I'm not necessarily saying that I agree with the bumfuck who wrote the letter.
